Mortenson v. Snook (CoS-CLC Unanswered Indictment #130201)

The following is the officially released unanswered indictment from the Committee of Safety – Common Law Court in the matter of Chris Mortenson v. Ed Snook. On July 22nd of 2013, the Grand Jury found probable cause on 10 counts against Ed Snook. 



Count 1: Breach of Contract – That no paperwork was provided by Snook to either Mortenson or Swan, verifying the existence of a Contract; That no accounting was provided, as required by the Contract, indicating charges; That no notice of termination was provided to the Client. That minimally any verbal statement as to termination, if even that existed, is contrary to the Contract, itself.

Count 2: Breach of Contract – That Snook had terminated the Contract without cause, notwithstanding that claim that he can terminate the Contract at any time, since the Contract has specific causes for termination [E, Provisions of Contract], which is contradictory to the blanket provision for termination at discretion [G, Provisions of Contract], which is unjustified if specific provisions are provided (one negates the other), which would lead on to believe that any discretion would have to be based upon the enumerated causes.

Count 3: Breach of Contract – In that Ed Snook entered into multiple contracts with non-aligned clients on the same case of Charles Dyer, much to the detriment of not only Chris Mortenson, but also Janet Dyer, and Amy Dark, in violation of his obligation to Mortenson.

Count 4: Fraudulent Inducement to Contract – In that Ed Snook fraudulently induced Debra Swan, on behalf of Chris Mortenson, to sign a contract by offering a money-back guarantee should Snook fail to keep up his obligation under the contract.

Count 5: Fraud – In that Ed Snook fraudulently solicited for payment from Janet Dyer, and her daughter Amy Dark, all the while knowing that the US Observer contract for the Charles Dyer article had already been contracted with Chris Mortenson.

Count 6: Fraud – In that Ed Snook fraudulently contracted with the Dyer family to write the Charles Dyer story while also receiving payment from Chris Mortenson for the exact same product.

Count 7: Threat – Ed Snook threatened to engage in character assassination campaign against Debra Swan (agent for Mortenson) if she did not comply with his demands.

Count 8: Libel – Ed Snook wrote and published an article in the US Observer whereby, with malicious intent, he caused public derision and hatred against Chris Mortenson and Debra Swan.

Count 9: Slander – Ed Snook was interviewed on The Free American rado show where he made malicious mischaracterizations of Debra Swan and Chris Mortenson.

Count 10: Defamation – Ed Snook, and his known associates, have made inflammatory and malicious accusations about Chris Mortenson and Debra Swan, and claimed that there was no contract.

Mark Koenig [aka Smiter13] – Wall of Shame (CoS-CLC)

The following is an officially released document from the Committee of Safety – Common Law Court regarding Mark Koenig (alias Smiter13). He violated the Secrecy Oath that he took when he volunteered to become a grand juror.



The Grand Jury, during internal deliberations, have found that one of its members, who had taken the Secrecy Oath, has violated said Oath and done so in a manner that could bring discredit and ridicule upon the Committee of Safety – Common Law Court. After having this violation brought to his attention, he provided a story to justify his actions and lay blame upon threats received from agents of the government. An investigation ensued concerning what might have been mitigating circumstances about said violation, since it occurred during the Grand Jury’s investigation of Baez v. Rudkowski (CLC Docket #120301).

The Grand Juror in question is Mark Koenig, aka Smiter and Smiter13. The details of the investigation are:

Smiter took the Secrecy Oath prior to the commencement of the Baez v. Rudkowski case.

On December 10, 2012, Smiter called in to an Internet Radio Show, “Crotch Shot Radio,” hosted by Louie Baez, the Accuser in the case before the Grand Jury. The relevant portion of that show is at SmiterSecrecyViolation.mp3 (approximately 8 minutes in length).

At 3:20, Smiter states that he is part of the CLC. At 4:30, he mentions the Accused, Luke Rudkowski, by name. At 4:40, Baez attempts to discourage any discussion of his case. At 5:20, Smiter insists that he wants to talk about the case publicly; he then proceeds to goad Baez to talk about the case (Baez understood beforehand that the case was not to be discussed publicly).

Smiter also posted in the show chat room, asking if anyone wanted to talk about “WAC” (this is referring to We Are Change, an political activist organization that was involved in the case).

After the radio show, Smiter contacted Louie Baez on Skype. Baez began recording on Skype well into the conversation. That portion recorded is at smiter13.mp3 (2:20 in length).

* * * *

Subsequently, on December 15th, the Clerk of the CLC contacted Smiter in an effort to discover what caused him to violate his Secrecy Oath. He provided a story that, though weak on some points, was initially plausible.

* * * *

Smiter then provided a sworn (though not witnessed or notarized) affidavit to the Clerk, giving a more detailed account of the events of December 10th.

* * * *

Continued discussions, via telephone with Smiter, and continual requests for the Police Report and Videos, began to take their toll. It appeared that the story that was presented was unsustainable.

The Grand Jury revisited Smiter’s Secrecy Oath violation, after having initially quashed it upon word from the Clerk that there were potentially mitigating circumstances surrounding the violation (such as the possibility that Smiter was being coerced by government agents). Upon reopening investigation of the Secrecy Oath violation, all of the Clerk’s relevant emails and audio recordings were made available to the Grand Jury for consideration. After reexamining the older Exhibits as well as discussing the newer ones, the Grand Jury voted to charge Smiter with violating his Secrecy Oath.

Smiter will be given the opportunity to answer to these charges. If he fails to answer, they will be posted on the “Wall of Shame” at the Liberty Tree Forum.

James Sims [aka, J Sims] – Wall of Shame (CoS-CLC)

The following is an officially released document from the Committee of Safety – Common Law Court regarding James Sims (alias J Sims). He is dishonored for his failure to participate in the CLC as per his promise to fulfill his duties as a grand juror that he willingly volunteered for.



On August 28, 2012, the Committee of Safety – Common Law Court, having received a Complaint, sent an email to the Grand Jury pool. The Grand Jury (and all other Court personnel) are voluntary positions. The email was to ask for volunteers for Grand Jury #1203.

Subsequent emails were sent out until responses were received from most members of the Grand Jury pool.

James Joseph Sims (aka, J Sims; simsj90@yahoo.com) replied on September 3, 2012, agreeing to serve on Grand Jury #1203.

Mr. Sims only posted a total of 3 times on the Liberty Tree Forum, only within the first few days of deliberation, each one consisting of only a few words that were unproductive and once antagonistic to the Grand Jury Foreman. When asked to provide more detail about his initial comments, he refused to explain himself, or to participate any further, which is required by virtue of his volunteering. He has dishonored himself by proving his unreliability to the Patriot Community after he willingly volunteered to participate in the Grand Jury investigation.

Considering Mr. Sims’ lack of participation, as well as his unnecessarily disruptive actions when he did participate, it is hereby stated for and on the record that James Sims be placed on the Common Law Court’s Wall of Shame.
